Piton de la Fournaise (France) - Report for 12 January-18 January 2022 - NEW

OVPF reported that the eruption at Piton de la Fournaise continued during 10-16 January.
Weather clouds often obscured views of the vent, though visual observations were made daily.
Lava was sometimes ejected above the crater rim.
The lava lake periodically rose and overflowed the cone during 10-13 January, sending flows down the flanks, and several breakouts of lava were visible on the flow field.
The flow on the S margin of the field slowly advanced to the S wall of Enclos Fouqué.
Activity decreased for a period of time during 14-15 January.
Activity increased again during 15-16 January, though no overflows of the lake were recorded and lava was only periodically ejected above the rim.
Some small vegetation fires were visible near the base of the caldera wall.
Tremor decreased and the eruption ceased at 0210 on 17 January.
